Bridge: It was the one that got away

Wanderer Mark Bridge says the team should have put away their chances, bringing only one point back to Western Sydney after Sunday's frustrating draw. 

Bridge scored the equaliser for the Red & Black in Round 4's clash against Newcastle Jets and admitted that the team should have snatched the win given their eight chances in the match. 

“No excuses from us - we should have closed the game off in the first half," Bridge told to FOX SPORTS.

“A lapse in concentration cost us and you can't let that happen.

"One mistake can cost you the three points.

“That's football - unfortunately we've got no luck at the moment but onto the next one. We've got a big game next week against Victory."


The Wanderers held on to ensure that they continued their undefeated run in Newcastle, having not lost a match at McDonald Jones Stadium in their club history.

"(The game was) the one that got away," said Bridge. 

"We didn't really dominate the game.

“Both teams had their chances but it was a bit sloppy to be honest.

"The heat didn't help but we both had to play in it."
